My [B]daddy [E]told me, [F#]lookin [B]back,
[E]The best friend you'll have is a [F#]railroad track
So when [B]I was 1[E]3, I said, [F#]I'm rollin' my [B]own
And [E]I'm leavin' Missouri and I'm [F#]never comin' [B]home
And I'm [B]lost
And I'm [E]lost
I'm [B]lost at the bottom of the [G#m]world
I'm [B]handcuffed to the bishop and the [E]barbershop liar
[B]I'm lost at [F#]the bottom of the [B]world.
[B]Satchel [E]Puddin' and [F#]Lord God [B]Mose
[E]Sitting by the fire with a [F#]busted nose
That [B]fresh egg [E]yeller is [F#]too damn [B]rare
But the [E]white part is perfect for [F#]slickin' down your [B]hair
And I'm [B]lost
And I'm [E]lost
I'm [B]lost at the bottom of the [G#m]world
I'm [B]handcuffed to the bishop and the [E]barbershop liar
[B]I'm lost at [F#]the bottom of the [B]world.
[B]Blackjack [E]Ruby and [F#]Nimrod [B]Cain
The [E]moon's the color of a [F#]coffee stain
[B]jesse [E]Frank and [F#]Birdy Joe [B]Hoaks
[E]But who is the king of [F#]all these folks?
And I'm [B]lost
And I'm [E]lost
I'm [B]lost at the bottom of the [G#m]world
I'm [B]handcuffed to the bishop and the [E]barbershop liar
[B]I'm lost at [F#]the bottom of the [B]world.
(Play riff A)

Well I [B]dined last [E]night with [F#]Scarface [B]Ron
On [E]Telapia fish cakes and [F#]fried black swan
[B]Razorweed [E]onion and [F#]peacock [B]squirrel
And I [E]dreamed all night about [F#]a beautiful girl

And I'm [B]lost
And I'm [E]lost
I'm [B]lost at the bottom of the [G#m]world
I'm [B]handcuffed to the bishop and the [E]barbershop liar
[B]I'm lost at [F#]the bottom of the [B]world.
(Play Riff A and B)

Well [B]God's green [E]hair is where [F#]I slept [B]last
He [E]balanced a diamond on a [F#]blade of grass
Now [B]I woke [E]me up with a [F#]cardinal [B]bird
And when [E]I wanna talk
He [F#]hangs on every word

And I'm [B]lost
And I'm [E]lost
I'm [B]lost at the bottom of the [G#m]world
I'm [B]handcuffed to the bishop and the [E]barbershop liar
[B]I'm lost at [F#]the bottom of the [B]world.
(Play riff A 2x + fadeout)
